Cycle Seven Journals

How do you feel when your torn in two? You know the answer, you know the best choice, you know who you love, theres no reason to force... He's the one that makes me laugh when I really want to cry, he's the one I kiss and I'm not depressed inside. My choice is between two and the answer is so clear, he is the one I want so very near.
He's the one that I love and the one I don't want to go away. For I love him this strongly and I need him here. He's the very reason I smile today, and frown when we have to walk away. He's the reason I'm still breathing and the reason I'm still strong... he's the reason I sing happy songs, and I'll keep him forever and much longer.

Boot Camp- Was really sad! At times it made me really mad. I wanted to punch Joe in the face. Because of his abuse and disgrace. Sarah, Pauly, and Garrett escaped. Thankfully no one got raped! -Angie


So I didn't like Boot Camp as much as I thought I would. There were a few shocking moments, but the ending wasn't that great. I had a feeling he was going to be recusued but not by his mom. That was just random.


Who doesnt love the turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, rolls and other great food when Thanksgiving comes around? Every fourth Thursday in November familes gather and share a meal together. Although the food is delicious thats not what the most important part of Thanksgiving is. Thanksgiving is about what it represents, what it symbolizes, what it means. Which is, what your thankful for (Hints the name, Thanksgiving).
How did this holiday, or tradition begin? In 1620 people from England known as Pilgrims came so they could have religious freedoms. They wanted to choose their own church. They came on a ship called "The Mayflower". They lived in a place called Plymouth. The Indians and the pilgrims soon became friends. The Native Americans helped them find food and build shelters. That's when Thanksgiving began. The set down to have a harvest feast and from then on the tradition has continued.
What I remember most is the rare moments when my family got together and we had a good time. I really value those moments because I know it will never happen again. My dad always made his signature chocolate pie! That was my favorite thing! -Angie
What I'm thankful for is my friends and family. I'm thankful that I have people to trust, and no matter what, I have God by my side. I'm thankful that I have people in my life that care for me and love me. -Haley(:
